Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
You may have damage to one tooth on the ring gear and was unlucky that this tooth lined up onto the pinion gear and stopped the solenoid from pulling in fully. Also, the bush in the primary housing cover may have worn and has a lip on it which can catch the shaft when it pulls in. I have got this fault a few times on elderly bikes. If the fault has cleared, I would not go looking unless it happens again. If it does, rock the bike in gear to more the ring gear and if it works straight afterwards, it is more than likely the ring gear.
